If you have never been asked to help arrange Santa Clara bail bonds before you are probably unfamiliar with the process and how bail works. You may be torn between wanting to getting your loved one out of jail as quickly as possible and wanting to make sure you do everything you can to get the best deal on a bond. You may be surprised to learn that purchasing bail bonds is not like purchasing a kitchen appliance or a car.
In this state, bail is regulated by the California State Department of Insurance. They, not individual bondsmen, set the rate at which we’re to charge our clients. That rate is 10%. If someone has had their bail set at $40,000, you can expect to pay $4,000 to purchase a bond. You may also be surprised to learn it is against the law for Santa Clara bail bonds companies to charge more or less than the legal rate.
If someone is offering to sell you discount bail bonds, this should be an enormous red flag. This person is breaking the law. You should also be extremely wary if this person is asking you to post collateral. If they are being unlawful on the front end to get your business, can you really be sure they will uphold the law on the back end and return this item to you at the end of the defendant’s case?
At Adelante Bail Bonds we may not be able to offer you discount bail, but we can offer you professional, reliable service.
